I know it’s been rather quiet around these parts. I’ve been trying to recoup from my weekend in Dallas and now my weekend participating in homecoming festivities at the university I attend. I don’t usually do too much, but I always attend the greek show, tailgate, and try to attend the halftime show being as though we have the best band in the land.
This year was much like last year except for the fact that I overslept and didn’t get on campus in time to get the real food. But thank God for food trucks. Anywho, even though we lost our homecoming game after going into overtime, the band definitely did not disappoint.
Later on, my friends and I made plans to go out. And while I wanted to wear this cute fitted dress I found at Forever21, so did everyone else on my timeline so I had to change. If it’s one thing I hate, it’s seeing someone dressed exactly like you at the same party as you. Reason #245 why I love thrifting.
I decided to go with a thrifted skirt I was sure no one would have on, a bandeau top, and Steve Madden Deeny pumps. It still wasn’t what I wanted to wear but I think I put it together well. And remember when I said one day I’ll be bold enough to rock a red lip? Yea, well.. I did that and I loved the way it looked.
Ya’ll, after leaving the party at 4AM and feeling my feet burning from dancing in 5″ heels, I am done for the year. I definitely enjoyed myself with my best friends and classmates, but I know I won’t be able to handle too many more nights like this. Sure, I had fun.. lots of it, but these last few weekends are enough for the rest of year. And that’s perfectly fine with me. It’s time for pumpkin patches, trick or treating, birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and preparation for the new year. And that’s definitely worth the turn down.
